The last time these two sides faced each other, a new set of heroes were excavated, a little more so for the Kings XI though. Manan Vohra almost pulled off an incredible run chase without any support from their overseas stars, only to be stopped by arguably India’s best death bowler, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar. Bhuvi took a 5 for in the game and snatched it out of Vohra’s reach right at the end.
Since then things have started to look up for the Kings XI, and though Vohra hasn’t been contributing a lot, they would be happy that the team has found some much needed direction after that close loss. Hashim Amla and Glenn Maxwell have taken on the mantle of the batting unit, playing solid knocks all along. And Axar Patel is leading the bowling unit with some panache.
SRH on the other hand have made a master stroke by drafting in Kane Williamson into their side, as it helps do away with that extra pressure on Warner, and he can express himself more freely. Rashid Khan has been living the dream. He came in as a young associate nation player looking to make his mark on the biggest T20 league in the world, and now he is making people dance to his trickery.
